Announces Debut Album "Our Way is Revenge" out August 21st on Kanine!
(L-R: Destiny, Miyuki, Danny, Autry)
"Squelching guitars and drawn-out rhythms evoke everyone from Can to Glass Candy" - Creative Loafing
While on tour with Celebration, Miyuki Furtado of the Rogers Sisters met some of Katrina Ford’s Atlanta-based friends. Finding like-minded musicians in British-born vocalist Destiny Ming Wan Montague and guitarist/melodica player Autry Rene Fulbright II, he offered to play drums for them if they ever made it up to New York.
Shortly thereafter, not without a little encouragement from TV on the Radio’s David Sitek, Fulbright and Montague relocated to Brooklyn. With a co-conspirator in Miyuki, the way was paved for Shock Cinema. And that way is revenge.
If you ask whom they are taking revenge on, you'll be hard-pressed to find an answer, though Sigourney Weaver - do the anagram - is one possibility. If you ask about collective influences, you'll get a barrage of responses including Can, David Lynch, Barrington Levy, Ghostface Killah, Os Mutantes.
Their debut “Our Way is Revenge” sees release August 21st (Kanine Records). It is largely born from songs the three recorded after getting together only once. The record includes six original tracks, a J. Clark (Pretty Girls Make Graves) reworking of "Howling Door," and a Subtitle (aka Giovanni Marks, now the band's official guru) mix of the all-in-French "Art of Noir."
For the rest of 2007 and into 2008, Shock Cinema will focus on touring and recording tracks for their next effort at Sitek’s Stay Gold Studio with Chris Coady (Blonde Redhead, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, Gang Gang Dance). Danny Wood (And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead) is currently filing out the line up on bass guitar.
